Catherine "Cat" Wilde, a sixtyish furniture restorer, turns to bank robbery in desperation following a series of personal disasters (her daughter and son-in-law are killed in an auto accident, and the son-in-law's family inherits the loan on her house and plans to foreclose). Unfortunately, the bank stickup (perpetrated with a toy knife filled with ketchup) doesn't quite go as planned: first, she takes a toddler as a hostage, then discovers that the kid's mother is on the run from an abusive husband -- so she ends up taking them in as her houseguests. The author's first novel . (Inventory #: 15989)
